Are you a fan of Utz Cheese Balls? Well today is your lucky day because it’s National Cheese Ball Day! Unfortunately, cheese balls and other starchy snacks aren’t good for you. They increase your blood sugar and cause serious problems for diabetics.

Starches and AMD

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a widespread threat to aging eyes. More than “14 million Americans” have symptoms of AMD.

Why Cheese Is Good

Cheese is a great source of calcium. It’s also a good source of other vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, Vitamin B12, zinc, and phosphorous. Unfortunately, cheese gets a bad rep. People tend to think cheese is loaded with fat and makes people gain weight.

According to Healthline, the healthiest cheese are mozzarella, blue cheese, feta, cottage cheese, ricotta, Parmesan, Swiss, cheddar, and goat. You can read all about the nutritional facts through their article!

Health Benefits of Eating Cheese

  1. First, calcium builds strong and healthy bones.
  2. Second, it reduces the risk of heart disease.
  3. Third, dairy products have vitamin A which benefits eye health.

Make Your Own on National Cheese Ball Day

Instead of going for the starchy snack, make your own! Use some cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, cheddar cheese and pecans. Mix everything together and make it into a ball.
